After winning his third World Series, the manager of the St. Louis Cardinals has decided to quit while he's ahead.
"There isn't one [factor] that dominates [my decision]. They all just come together telling you your time is over…I'm looking forward to what's ahead. I'm ready to do something different."
The 67-year-old has done a remarkable job since joining the Cardinals in 1996. He's led the team to 9 postseasons, three pennants and two World Series victories.
After winning world championships with both the Oakland A's and Cardinals, he is now one of two baseball managers to win a world championship in the American and National leagues.
Congrats on the record breaking 33-season career and good luck in the future!
